The Benefits Of Electrostatic Spray Disinfecting
As companies prepare to re-enter their buildings/facilities, you may be thinking: “How can we make our building/facility more secure for our employees, tenants, and all visitors?” Well, you are not alone. In fact, many buildings/facilities are making safety their top priority. You probably have already heard of “Electrostatic Spray Disinfecting” and may be asking yourself what the benefits are and whether it’s right for your facility. First, let us start by answering the following question; “What is Electrostatic Spray Disinfecting?”
Electrostatic spray disinfecting is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. After the spray is applied, the disinfectant goes to work on the entirety of all surfaces. It only takes 1 to 5 minutes depending on the disinfectant used; killing 99.99% of all pathogens. Its effective and touchless application means zero cross-contamination. Electrostatic spray disinfecting works by using a specialized solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to all surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are charged, they cling to and completely coat all surfaces they're aimed at.
Now, let’s go over some of the benefits of “Electrostatic Spray Disinfection”:
- Entire surface coverage for complete disinfection of all designated areas
- All disinfectants are OSHA, EPA, and CDC approved and compliant
- Safer and more consistent application with no disruption to existing areas, papers, or surfaces with quick kill time and no residue
- Can be sprayed on keyboards, phones, copiers, and all other electronic high touch areas without damage or concern
You can see why electrostatic spraying would be prudent to consider in your facilities and common areas following the COVID-19 pandemic. It only takes one infected person to spread COVID-19 throughout an entire facility infecting numerous others. This is why you must be proactive with an ongoing scheduled disinfecting program to prevent the spread of any asymptomatic and active COVID-19, other viral, bacterial, germs, and pathogens.
